A talk by John Scott as part of the Special Collections exhibition, "Medicine in Wartime".
This talk is part of a series accompanying the exhibition "Medicine in Wartime" at the Sir Duncan Rice Library, University of Aberdeen, which includes a copy of the pocket aide-mémoire devised for use by British troops, by Surgeon Major Peter Shepherd. It was commissioned by the newly formed St John Ambulance Association. Tragically, Shepherd was killed helping the wounded at the Battle of Isandhlwana, during the Anglo-Zulu War, and his guide was published posthumously.
Talk attendees will have the opportunity to visit the exhibition afterwards. https://www.abdn.ac.uk/library/events/12294/
